I have hard water, KH 10 and GH 11 out of the tap. I love neon tetras, but apparently they dont do well in that level of hardness. Any suggestions for good hardwater fish I could consider stocking my freshwater 75 gallon? I know guppies, mollies, and cichlids are good options. Any others? Maybe some tiny schooling fish similar to neon tetras?

My tap is
8.1ph
440ppm tds
12gh
7kh
Some may disagree with my stocking options but here is my current stock list.

Neons
Silvertips tetra
Gold ram
Guppies
Bettas
Glow tetra (adopted didn't buy)
Rubber lipped pleco
Bristlenose pleco
Glass bloodfin tetra
Red eye tetra.
Three strip corys.

They all have been doing well for a long while.

I am getting into keeping shrimp. Now I am having to lower GH and KH for their health.
